NYA Supper Club - Drugs and the Summer
With recent reports show that drug-related deaths are at the highest level ever. We know that intergenerational misuse of alcohol and drugs is a significant societal issue. And yet, the support and funding to support and intervene for children of substance misusing parents is minimal.
How are we as a practice equipped to support young people and their communities. How do we support young people to be able to share the issues that may be happening at home or within their own dependency, or at worst their involvement in the ever growing county lines. There is a multi-faceted crisis within young people s lives. Young people need support, a safe and trusted place and person to talk. This Supper Club will bring together experts in the field of substance misuse, to explore the current barriers to accessing support, exemplars of good practice and what we as a Youthwork sector can do to support young people alongside our colleagues.
